Work Related Road Safety

Work Related Road Safety

The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 (as well as basic common sense), requires that you take:

Appropriate steps to ensure the health and safety of (your) employees and others who may be affected by their activities when at work. This includes the time when they are driving … whether this is in a company or hired vehicle, or in the employee’s own vehicle”.

Work Related Road Safety is an increasingly vital subject, as our roads get busier and busier.

Whether you operate a large fleet of vehicles (including trucks, vans or cars), or even just one or two, your responsibilities are laid out clearly.

Road Skills can help you meet and exceed those responsibilities.

Road Skills deliver business and change management solutions designed to engender a “best practice culture” in your organisation – helping both you and your company drivers to understand, adhere to, and benefit from current legislation.

Our Work Related Road Safety systems are designed based on first hand, on-the-road experience, to give your logistics managers, fleet operators and drivers all the tools they need to:

  • Reduce collisions
  • Improve safety
  • Reduce insurance premiums
  • Cut fuel consumption
  • Reduce vehicle wear and tear

Companies who invest in our help consistently see cost savings that far exceed our fee.  They also see significant improvement in driver retention, and a reduction in complaints from other road users.

The HSE acknowledges:

There will always be risks associated with driving. Although these cannot be completely controlled an employer has a responsibility to take all reasonable steps to manage these risks down to as low a level as reasonably possible in the same way as they would in the workplace”.

Road Skills offer practical, real-world strategies that help you take “all reasonable steps” in complying with the latest Work Related Road Safety legislation ...
